Pau Hana Patrol: Tiki’s teases taste buds by John Berger - Pulse The Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Tiki's Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail is pretty, even without a traditional cocktail glass, and makes for good pau hana pupu at Tiki's Grill & Bar. —John Berger /

It occurred to me as I was enjoying a late afternoon on the lanai at Tiki’s Grill & Bar — tikis of various sizes and shapes on one side, a beautiful view of the ocean on the other — that there are times when that old saying, “You get what you pay for,” means exactly that. The $5 “Happy Hour” Mai Tai that I’d started out with wasn’t bad. I’d never been more aware of the ice cubes that are part of the basic recipe, but by the time I finished it there was no doubt that the deceptively innocuous drink contained a significant amount of alcohol.

But then — strictly in the interests of Pau Hana Patrol research — I ordered a 1944 Mai Tai ($9) from the Nuevo Classics menu.

The presentation was the same –served in a coconut shell cup, and garnished with a wedge of lime, slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry. The impact wasn’t. There was more substance to this one, a sense that the concoction was thicker, even allowing for all the ice. The rums were more assertive, and the flavors of fruit juice and orange curacao were stronger. From the first sip to the last, there was no question that this was a drink with a good bit of alcohol. When I was finished, I knew that the time for testing adult drinks was over and I’d be drinking water or some other “all-ages beverage” for the rest of the afternoon.


2570 Kalakaua Ave. (second floor, ASTON Waikiki Beach Hotel)

Happy hour:

2 to 5 p.m. daily

» $2.50 selected draft beers

» $3 Sex on the Beach and rum and coke (ask server for daily specials)

» $5 Mai Tai, margarita on the rocks, Blue Hawaii on the rocks

Taco Tuesday:

5 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays

» $2 tacos (cash only, while supplies last)

» Mega Mango Mojitos ($10, regular $12)

» Tiki’s Cold Buster ($5, regular $7)

» Top Shelf Margaritas ($7.50, regular $9)

Note: Validated valet parking is free; enter from Ohua Street

Tiki’s has no “Happy Hour” food discounts, a fact that bargain hunters should keep in mind, but the pupu menu available at the open-air bar offers an impressive range of selections — ahi sashimi ($14), ahi poke ($12), steamed clams, baby back ribs ($10) and crispy mochiko chicken ($9) are a few examples. I’ve learned that a solo “patroller” shouldn’t commit to things served in large portions, so I regretfully passed up on the half-pound Grand Tiki Burger with fries ($12), the Kalua Pig Nachos ($14) and the Kalua Pig Quesadilla ($12) in favor of three other choices.

The Tender Beef Skewers ($14), a plate of four, proved an excellent choice. The beef was flavorful, the slices of red and green peppers crisp and tangy, and the chunks of onion tart but not too strong.

Tiki’s Famous Coconut Shrimp ($13), large and crunchy, rolled in coconut and served with sweet chili sauce, was beautifully presented. Chopped greens are often used simply to add a bit more height to dishes. I sampled the “Asian slaw” under the shrimp and found the sharp taste of ginger a nice counterpoint to the sauce.

The Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail ($12) isn’t served in a giant cocktail glass but the artistry of the presentation — four large shrimp served with two choices of dipping sauce and colorfully garnished — made the glass unnecessary. The shrimp were large, and the sauces — a wasabi-accented cocktail sauce and a dark sauce — complemented them nicely.

The "Happy Hour" Mai Tai, $5, will put patrons in the best of moods. —John Berger /

On Tuesdays, Tiki’s Happy Hour folds into Taco Tuesdays, with $2 tacos available “while supplies last,” payment by cash only. Be there promptly if you want your tacos served in a hard shell. Those ran out in 20 minutes on the Tuesday I visited, and from that point on they were served in soft purple wraps. Red cabbage along with cheese and ground meat as taco filler? Well, why not? (See my observation at top.)

The Taco Tuesday drink specials sounded tempting, but it had been a long day and I had a long drive through rush hour traffic ahead of me. Consider it unfinished business for the future.

TV Clip of Tiki's - Ways to save and have fun while visiting Hawaii

Denise Whitaker of KOMO4 NEWS a Seattle's ABC TV Affiliate recently traveled from Seattle for Oahu to produce and segment on affordable Hawaii travel. Terri one of our server at Tiki's Grill & Bar was sharp in introducing  Tiare and I to Denise.  Also interviewed was a friend Noelani Schilling-Wheeler from the Oahu Visitors Bureau.
Winter weather is closing in on us so you might be planning a sunny trip over the next few months. But let's be realistic, everybody's budget is tighter right now. Hawaii would be great, but can you afford it?

Life is an adventure! That's the way KOMO 4 -Weekend Morning Anchor, Denise Whitaker views her time here on earth. Denise and her husband Terron enjoy Adventure Racing, a multi-sport competition where you navigate your way through a secret course by mountain biking, hiking, canoeing or kayaking, with a little climbing or rappelling thrown in for good measure!

Professionally, Denise worked her way up through the ranks of television news, anchoring weekend weather, reporting and finally anchoring the news.

She grew up in and around Chicago, but called five states home, before she found her new home in Seattle. Denise loves doing what she can for others, serving in the past on the boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Susan G Komen Foundation, American Diabetes Association and various groups that promote health and physical fitness. Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee appointed Denise to his Governor's Council on Fitness and awarded her the Arkansas Traveler Certificate.

When she's not outside running a trail, or mountain biking, you'll find Denise in the kitchen, creating gourmet, yet healthy recipes.

Hawaii Five-O in the Coconut Club

The New Hawaii Five-O filmed several scenes in the Coconut Club on the 21st floor high above Tiki's Grill & Bar.

Normally this room is used as one of our large party banquet party spaces, for local and destination weddings, rehearsal dinners, company incentives and holiday parties, birthdays, (Yes - Its a pitch, Tiare and I love to help plan parties, email us for more info).

The technical and creative crew had a few meals at Tiki's as they planed and then set the different scenes. Here is what the outside balcony normally looks like set for a party.

They borrowed tables, chairs and several props from us to set up the late night bar scene. Some of the crew shared with us the room a perfect spot for multiple scenes because the room has a outside and inside area and is completely private and offers the most sensational view of Waikiki. There is beautiful back drop of Diamond Head and the feeling of having the ocean right in your backyard. We hoped they would have shown the sunset from the room, but it did not fit the storyline. It was very cool to have all the stars of the show in the coconut club.
